Don't let my username fool you, I made that out of spite sometime in the fall when my girlfriend encouraged me to start tracking my intake. When January came and a friend of mine put on a "biggest loser" competition I felt enough is enough (also, i felt i wanted the money
On January 12th, at 28 years old and 5'6" I weighed in at 180.8lbs. Since then I've lost around 26lbs, currently sitting at 154lbs. A huge accomplishment but I was planning on about 10 more. When I was in college I weighed 147lbs and with my frame it looked right. I knew at first the weight would come off quicker but I havent lost anything for the past week, even putting on about two pounds from 152 - 154.
I am eating around 1500 calories a day and have greatly increased my activity. Burning between 500-700 extra calories a day or every other day.
I feel I am at a plateau and am looking for advice for anything that might help.
Breakfast is usually about 30 - 60 minutes after I wake up. It has a higher percentage of proteins and fats than carbs. Calories are usually around 200-350.
Lunch is more carbs, fruits and vegetables, with protein, lean meat. Around 400 calories.
Dinner is lighter, mainly even between carbs, fats and protein. Around 200-350.
Snacks are in between the meals, fruits,vegetables, nuts, yogurt, protein/fiber bars. to round out close to 1500.
Most of the food I eat is fresh, not processed except for soups(i know it contains 2 servings), yogurt & protein/fiber bars.
Exercise comes from cardio machines, soccer, roller hockey, basketball and broomball in the afternoon or evenings.
Anyone out there plateau at some point and what were you able to do to push through it?
